A Thai film director has demanded the right to be cloned. After the success of scientists in Scotland in cloning a sheep they called Dolly, Kamthorn Thapkhanlai said there was no reason several copies of himself or his wife, Piyamas, could not be made. 'I believe that human cloning has already been done but has been kept secret. Why can't it be me,' he asked. He regretted that no experts had responded to his urgent fax: 'Please clone me or my wife.' The director said that, since they could not have children, this was 'our last chance'. Many governments and experts have already said human cloning should be outlawed because of the physical risks and ethical reasons. But TV talk shows and at least one seminar have discussed the implications of human cloning.
